Irish Chain simplified

I decided to go with the simplified version and pieced it together. After preparing the top I was so quick that I did the batting as well, and forgot to take a picture prior. Hopefully I still qualify for the last round of Melissa's quilt along! I will finish the other part as well, but I need some creme coloured fabric because I used all of the existing ones for this quilt. As a backing I chose a white material from IKEA, it is a little heavier that the standard quilting fabric, but gives some extra stability to the quilt and the quilting will show up real nice.

I love your quilt: great choice of colors. I read your earlier posts and saw that you had to make some changes of your colors. I had to do the same and am still working on my new X blocks!! Congrats on your finish!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
